About Shelby

I love language. I majored in French Linguistics at Grand Valley State University with a double minor in English Language & Literature and Applied Linguistics. I studied abroad at L'université Catholique de l'Ouest in Angers, France and for the past two years, I have been living abroad in the Netherlands working with a Christian student organization studying the Bible with university students.

I've dabbled in learning Spanish and Arabic and spent some time over my two years in Holland learning Dutch. After my undergrad, I took a course to become certified to teach ESL/ESOL/EFL. Now I am enrolled at Covenant Theological Seminary and am working towards a Master of Arts in Religion and Cultures. As you can see, I'm rather fond of culture and language!

As far as experience goes, during my time at Grand Valley, I worked with a high school student who needed help with her lower-level Spanish course as well as Algebra. I simultaneously had the joy of helping her mother with Proofreading, Grammar and Writing as she was pursuing a degree in Nursing.

I have had two years of experience tutoring friends at university with Writing, Grammar, Linguistics and French. I have also enjoyed tutoring younger students; I spent the first two years at Grand Valley working as a nanny for a family with two kids, ages 5 and 8. As part of my nannying position, I regularly helped them with their elementary-level homework. It has been a joy to tutor each of these kinds of students, from 5 years old to adulthood, and to be able to see them gain confidence in their abilities and watch their grades rise! I hope to be able to help you in the same way.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

I have worked as a short-term international missionary. Growing up, I attended a Christian school, where I learned about the Bible and how to study it. The past two years, I have been putting this into practice, teaching university students how to study the Bible for themselves.

English

I obtained two minors with my undergraduate degree: English Language & Literature and Applied Linguistics.

I have a BA in French Linguistics, double-minoring in English Language & Literature and Applied Linguistics. I then took a postgraduate online TESOL course and am certified to teach English as a Second Language. Language-learning is my passion!

Grammar

I obtained two minors in English in my undergraduate degree with a major in French Linguistics. My course load included Advanced English Grammar.

Literature

English literature has always been a passion of mine.
